Thoughts on Serials

Mountains - Klondike Highway

I am working on the last edit of my first book of short stories, and I am considering splitting the book into serials. Tales from the Mountain has three sections, two of which could be turned into serials with three parts. It would not be difficult to pull off. The stories in the third section could be posted to the blog as free reads for my readers, maybe aiding in the selling of the serials.

I am most likely going to publish the serials first through Amazon. There are some rights I will be giving up at first, but I will gain them back before too long. It will be worth it if what I am planning works. Once I get the rights back, I will be free to sell the serials wherever I want.

I have a lot to think about as far as all this goes.

I am considering doing much the same for this site. Serials that will aid writers with their freelance careers.

What might you do to create a new income stream for your freelance business? Would serials be helpful to your fans?
